The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Houston District and the City of Pearland are proposing to widen Mykawa Road from two to four lanes from FM 518 to Beltway 8 in Harris and Brazoria Counties, Texas. The project purpose is to decrease congestion, increase mobility, and improve safety on Mykawa Road. This project is in partnership with The City of Pearland, TxDOT and the Federal Highway Administration.

Texas has been aggressively acquiring private land through condemnation for transportation projects across the state to accommodate the needs of a growing population. If you have been contacted by TxDOT or any of their representatives, please contact us immediately. The important thing to remember is that even if you’ve received a letter in the mail from a condemnation entity informing you of their intentions, this does not mean that it’s a done deal. There are many ways to influence the condemnation process to ensure that your wants and needs are met, but it’s important that you involve knowledgeable professionals that can help guide you through the process.
